Although the release of their 4rd album was fast enough, it seems that the members of the band were inspired and they couldn’t wait to share it with the fans! Having listened to the album several times, I believe that they did the right thing .The new Black Veil Brides album is one of their best albums so far, without being sure that this is their best of all since their 3rd one was flawless and with several hits. “Black Veil Brides” is a fairly mature, highly crafted and quite hit-tracks album. Well done once again for its crystal clear production.
The album comes with a very powerful and immersive “Heart Of Fire” but it is not the only impressive on the whole album. Τhere’s more… Listen to “Faithless” and “Drag Me To The Grave”, necessarily.
The guitar riffs and the vocals are in much better shape than the “Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones’’ album. Although they are still young, they have set the right base for a brilliant future.
Throughout the history of Black Veil Brides there is a trap, which I haven’t clarified yet. Some of those who have seen them live, but also me who has watched random videos online, unfortunately we are not satisfied with the result. The concert does not leave you with the same feeling as albums do.
Let’s hope that all the glamour around the Black Veil Brides name won’t be just the music production and the outfits but we will soon see them blast the stage the way they do with our headphones.
Considering the album, a negative sign is the ballads, which I find them useless in the most bands of the same music style. Just one is fine. After the 80s albums, is really hard for the new age bands to write a heartfull and meaningful ballad like those bands used to. So, if you want to do it, do it right and not just because you should add some ballads in the album so you can attract more girls to listen to it. Let’s leave this to boy bands and not to the hard rock & metal community.
